Dylan Rood of the Laboratory’s Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (CAMS) won honorable mention in the 2007 American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Student Poster Competition. He was recognized in the April 20, 2007, issue of Science and on the annual meeting’s Web site for his poster entitled “Changing Rates and Styles of Crustal Deformation at Timescales of 10 My to 10 Ky.”
Rood is a Student Employee Graduate Research Fellowship participant at the Laboratory. He uses geology and terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide dating methods at CAMS to research the question of whether earthquake fault slip rates are constant over different timescales. These rates provide a valuable context for assessing seismic hazards and will be used to test fundamental models of the earthquake cycle.

Patrice Turchi of the Chemistry, Materials, and Life Sciences Directorate won the 2007 Al Sonntag Award from the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE). Turchi was selected for his paper “Atomic-Scale Sliding Friction of Amorphous and Nanostructured SiC and Diamond Surfaces.”
The Al Sonntag Award was established in 1983 to honor the STLE member or members authoring the best paper on solid lubricants published by the society during the year preceding the annual meeting. STLE is the premier technical society representing 3,500 individuals and 150 companies and organizations that comprise the tribology and lubrication engineering business sector. Members are employed by leading corporations and academic institutions and by governmental agencies dealing with science
and technology.

Livermore computer scientist Maya Gokhale has been named a Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for her contributions to reconfigurable computing technology, a discipline of growing importance for deployable systems such as those used for homeland security and other defense applications.
Gokhale, who came to the Laboratory from Los Alamos National Laboratory in January 2007, has been working in the reconfigurable computing field since its inception in the late 1980s and has been instrumental in its development. The total number of IEEE fellows selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the worldwide IEEE voting membership.
